Mary’s Elephant

Here’s the second piece inspired by the lovely photographs of Mary Schwalm. This elephant turned out to be more colorful than I’d anticipated. As usual, I tried to match the colors of my drawing to the photograph, but find myself quite constrained by the colors available in my oil pastel box — this is different from watercolors, where I can create any color I want. I think it’s a blessing in disguise.
